The aim of the ABPI Code is to ensure that the promotion of prescription medicines and other interactions with health professionals are carried out in a responsible, ethical and professional manner.  The Code also covers the provision of information to the public and relationships with patient organisations.

The role will include being a member of the Code of Practice Panel which adjudicates upon complaints and providing training and advice on the Code and its operation.

We are seeking an all-rounder who has a degree in a biological science and/or law and has practical experience of working with the ABPI Code or similar.  You will need the ability to cope under pressure.
